Bedford Music In Detention worked on a number of exciting projects with various partner organisations for Refugee week 2017.
“An emotional release through artistic expression in which detainees’ voices are heard near and far through community exchange projects in all music led art forms.”
Jih -Wen Yeh (Producer, Bedford MID).
We launched our newly commissioned CD called ‘Countrywide’ on Monday 19th June 2017. These songs were created during a community exchange project involving detainees at Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre and Mind BLMK choir members. Mind BLMK choir performed the songs at The Higgins Bedford launch of Refugee Week which took place between 3-5pm on Saturday 17th June 2017.
You can hear these songs here on the Music In Detention’s website.
Commissioned artists: Johanne Hudson-Lett and Michael Goodey
Produced by Bedford Music In Detention in collaboration with Music for Change.
